As athletes you have an important responsibility in protecting the integrity of your sport. Part of that obligation means that you will need to provide your whereabouts details if you are a member of the IAAF Registered Testing Pool.
Providing accurate and up-to-date whereabouts is about protecting your right to clean sport. Whereabouts information gives the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) the ability to locate athletes with no notice, which is vital for testing athletes who choose to cheat themselves by doping.
Please note, that the Athletics Integrity Unit will be taking a more stringent approach to Whereabouts requirements in 2018-2019. You must read this information carefully as it spells out the requirements for 2018-2019.
You are directly responsible for constantly updating or completing your whereabouts information.
The IAAF strongly suggests that you identify a 60-minute time slot at a regular location that is unlikely to change and is easily accessible. You may find it easier to choose your home address and an hour where you are most likely to be available regularly, for example early in the morning before going for training or in the evening, after your last training session.
Whereabouts must be submitted through the online Anti-Doping Administration Management System (ADAMS)
UPDATING YOUR INFORMATION
You are directly responsible for constantly updating whereabouts information. Should your initial 60-minute time slot, regular activity, competition, training schedule or location change, you must inform us as soon as possible. This will avoid unnecessary resources being spent for a failed test and a Whereabouts Failure being recorded against you. Unjustified late changes will be pursued as Whereabouts Failures and you will be asked to provide proof that the change was made as soon as possible.
